Really light and sound better than my X2's
JHatton, 26.12.2020
Use:
Mainly at home for music and gaming.

Pros:
Much lighter than my previous headphones (Philips X2's), Imaging is amazing and even more precise. You are easily able to point where anything is coming from whether it is listening to music or gaming. QuIte easily driven using a G5 currently and doesn't have any issues on low gain.

Cons:
The only major issue is it isn't as comfy as people lead others to believe, compared to my X2's they are quite harsh on the clamping force and the ear cups aren't the thickest and can sometimes if not placed correctly rub on your ears. Some people with bigger ears might want to replace the ear cups which I might do in the near future if they don't break-in. My only other gripe is the cable its a bit long and might also want to be replaced with something higher quality and less bulky.

Has a good bit of "magic", but has its issues.
vodkadebugger, 30.10.2020
Disclaimer: I've only had a few hours with these and am not a producer.

I use these headphones at home, powered by an iFi Zen Can, feeding it FLAC from my PC through a Digitech RP155 as a DAC. My favourite two hobbies at home are critical listening and video games, so that's my use for them. I also have Audio-Technica ATH-AD500X and a pair of IEMs.

Pros: very clear sound - they definitely give the impression of letting you hear everything in the music - to me they don't seem sibilant but they will cause listening fatigue at very high volumes quickly. I am very happy with the tuning of these cans - very revealing but not tiring and fun if you appreciate intricacies in sound.

Cons: build quality. Casing resonance from low frequencies at high volumes can be very obvious. This might be fixed eventually or never by Sennheiser.

Conclusion: I genuinely enjoy listening with these, the benefits to me outweigh the drawbacks and I consider these a legitimate upgrade to what I had before.

Une claque!
Userlambda78, 07.11.2020
Je préfère attendre avant d'évaluer un casque (rodage, habituation, etc.) D'ailleurs, il m'a fallu 8 ans pour évaluer mon K702, 1 ans pour évaluer mon K712 et je n'ai toujours pas évalué mon HD660S que j'ai depuis 1 an. Pourtant, avec le HD560S il y a comme une évidence...

Parlons d'abord de mes toutes premières impressions: j'ai été très déçu. Il y avait comme des trous dans la réponse en fréquence. Je l'ai donc rodé pendant une semaine en le laissant tourner sur un ampli Denon. Puis je l'ai repris, et c'est uniquement à partir de ce moment-là qu'il s'est révélé...

1. Qualité de fabrication et confort : la même chose que les HD598 et HD599 mais en plus "pro". Le serrage du bandeau est plus fort, il n'y a pas de fioritures inutiles (je pense aux parties en plastique argentées du HD599), pas de couinement (que j'ai eu à chaque fois sur la game HD5**). Sur la qualité de fabrication, il ressemble beaucoup au HD660S. Mais avec le châssis des HD5**.

2. Le son

2.1. Scène sonore : étendue. Pas aussi étendue que sur un K702 mais le son est riche, se maintient bien en place. Il a du corp. En revanche nettement plus étendue que sur un HD660S.

2.2. Positionnement des instruments: Peut-être un peu moins fidèle que le K702. En fait, il est au même niveau que le HD660S qui demeure une référence en la matière.

2.3. Réponse en fréquence: le voile Sennheiser est quasiment inexistant, ce qui permet d'obtenir des timbres fidèles y compris sur les violons. Il faut tout de même admettre que le K702 fait mieux sur les timbres des violons. Mais il reste nettement au-dessus du HD660S sur les timbres des cordes en général.
L'ensemble de la réponse en fréquence est parfaitement neutre, ce qui a pour effet de faire ressortir tous les sons, mais de manière intelligente.
Ici, avec le HD560S, les basses sont impressionnantes: elles sont sèches, puissantes, percutantes. Leur niveau est parfait pour tout type de musique. Pas de lourdeur, pas de mollesse comme sur le K712. Pas d'exagération. Le tout en étant étendu. Une vraie réussite.
Les médiums sont au niveau de ce qu'on peut attendre d'un Sennheiser: présents, riches, détaillés. Les aigus sont aussi à l'équilibre parfait.

2.4. Dynamique: le casque a une dynamique impressionnante et donne toute sa musicalité aux morceaux de musique classique. Les piano ne sont pas éteints. Les crescendos sont nettement mesurables et les forte ressortent avec toute la puissance attendue. Sur une œuvre comme l'oiseau de feu de Stravinsky en SACD (Pierre Boulez, à l'époque du Chicago Symphonic Orchestra), la violente explosion au début de la danse infernale de tous les sujets de Kachtcheï n'est pas assourdissante ni distordue et le passage à la berceuse qui lui succède ne nécessite pas d'augmenter le volume.

3. Conclusion: ce casque est le casque que je recherchais. Il comble mes attentes parce qu'il est capable de jouer sur tous les terrains tout en étant équilibré.
Il réussit ce tour de force exceptionnel d'allier analyse, fidélité, musicalité et plaisir d'écoute.

Bravo!

Sehr gut
J.-P., 07.11.2020
Der Kopfhörer hat ein ehrlichen linearen Klang.
Für den Preis ist das sehr, sehr gut.
Der Tragekomfort ist gut. Ich finde ihn ein wenig stramm, aber das ist Geschmacksache.
Ich hätte es auch besser gefunden wenn er eine Miniklinke hätte und die Klinke zum aufschrauben. Aber auch das ist nicht wichtig.
Empfehlenswert auch zum Abhören.
